the political science community telling us if you look at where obama's approval ratings, these were not carter or bush sr. numbers, there was growth there. they were saying all year this guy should be a slight favorite to win reelection and low and behold after the drama he ends up winning by five million votes. do you think we appreciate it that obama was in pretty good shape? >> not great, but decent. >> it was like a chia pet election. you water it and it kept growing and growing. a lot of this has to do with the fact that the campaign knows how to do this campaign thing. they were able to expand and maximize what they had on the ground. you can't substitute. there is no substitute in this day and age for the target of the voters and reaches the audience and brings them out. nobody has done it better. not even in 2008. >> as we watch, thank you for joining us. president obama will take the oath of office in 12 days and preparations are under way in washington. the stage is being construct and we just learned that beyonce, kelly clark son and james taylor will perform. beyonce will belt out
